The Golden Wastes
Velos has an efficient sewage system, but one that is home to various horrors. Many Shudra work in the sewers to remove blockages, repair walls, and expand the system under their Calibani supervisors. They have long told stories of strange creatures who inhabit certain junctures who devour the wastes, but recently they have reported strange behavior of rats.
Sometimes before the sandstorm struck the desert, many rats and dire rats had begun leaving the sewers and attacking people, prompting the Overlord to post a modest bounty on dire rat tails. It was work welcomed by several gangs of poor men, eager to earn some money and earn a heroic reputation. However, recent weeks saw the ratcatchers overwhelmed and attacked by swarms of rats, prompting investigation by Samedi’s group.
The player characters have uncovered an area of unusual rat activity. Using fireballs to sweep the sewers, they have temporarily cleared out the worst nests, but they suspect the menace is not over.
